Can anyone help me identify what animal makes this sound?
« on: September 19, 2017, 09:52:19 AM »
Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and I've got something I'm hoping someone can help me with. I'm not sure if this is the best place to post an audio recording, but I didn't see anywhere else that made sense. I was camping with a friend and his son this weekend near Newaukum Lake (a few miles north of Cinebar, WA) and we woke up to this sound off in the distance, maybe 100 yards away or so.
The "cries" happened over about a 5 minute period before they stopped. They happened 4 times, about 20 cries each time, with about 30 seconds in between set. The audio isn't real time, I cut out a bunch of our conversation, footsteps, and other noises, to try to just get the most clear examples that I could. So the timing may sound weird. There was definitely a pattern to them, and no overlap. It seemed like one animal in one location. After about 5 minutes it stopped and we didn't hear anything else for the next 30 minutes before we left for the day.
Any feedback is welcome.
Thanks!

Someone was using a FoxPro or the like calling in predators IMO.  That is the pattern and the time frame.

Hang on a lot of guys on here will say it is most likely Squatch

Me 3.  It could be a bear vocal and it could be a cougar.  Both can make that sound as could a lynx or bobcat.  But the continued repetitive pattern leans toward a recorded sound.  I don't know the FoxPro library well enough, nor any other recorded sound that I use enough to ID this one.  I'd guess a recording of a near adolescent bear cub based on the sound.

If it is live, then I'd say cat, because I have heard them repeat a sound every 30-60 seconds over a half hour span, but it was always one cry, then the long pause, never more than one cry at a time.  Not sure but lean toward a recorded sound.

I would also go with the bear and it being electronic too.  The tone seamed to stay the same.

A cougar in heat. I've heard the same type of calling on the west side on Mt. Rainier.
I could care less about what anybody says..............

I thought this at first, too. Then I thought of that video of the bear taking down a deer in a guy's backyard and it was bleating/screaming like that.
